“10 min to Airport / Very Quiet / Friendly Stuff / Extra Menu Provided”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2013

I came for the second time. Tuck Tuck to Airport 600 LKR. 5 hrs Trip with Tuck Tuck 1900 LKR. Room clean. Pool super. Extra menu service. Stuff friendly. That place and those happy stuff make me happy to come again. Because Visa Rool in India we have to stay out of country for 24 hours. Green View Hotel is best location for "Visa Run" People.

Room Tip: I know only rooms in first and second floor. Exelent.

When I was heading to this place, I was wondering what have I booked ...as the way to the place is not so appealing leading from a dirt road upto the hotel.

On reaching the place, I found the hotel to be a pleasant nice structure and a good place for a short stay. The Hotel staff is thoughtful to immediately offer refreshments in the hot heat. As it is a service apartment, there were 3 rooms and that makes it comfortably spacious. There is a huge green land in front of the hotel which gives you a very calming view. The chirps of the various birds in the evenings gives you a feel of the rustic life the city people lost out on. Totally enjoyed it. There is a nice big pool too at the backside of the hotel, which again is a refreshment.

I would sure recommend it if looking for unwinding.

We arrived atGreen View after a very long train ride from Matara and a hectic bus ride on the 187 bus from Colombo. The last 10 kms was on a Tuc Tuc costing about $2. The train from Matara to Colombo cost $2 each in 2nd class. No first class.
We were made very welcome at the Green view hotel. Glasses of orange juice rapidly appeared and check in was fast.
Our room cost about $47. It was a very big apartment that we had with A/C. There was a kitchen in the apartment but no utensils of any kind.
The restaurant was excellent. I had the pork whilst my wife had the fish. All very good.
Breakfast was lovely. Brought to our rooms at 06-45 . We left at 08-00 for our flight home to UK. The Tuc Tuc to the airport cost $5 for the 15 minute ride.
The Green View hotel is very isolated but it is clean, welcoming and altogether a memorable stay.

Room Tip: Our rooms were excellent. Recommend the room nearest reception.

We booked our last night here before flying back home as this was a very close hotel to the airport and we needed a place to rest and have a shower. However the apartment had a bathroom which did not have shower cubicle or curtain!!! As cleanliness was not at his best we had to take shower with flip flop on. A/C and fan were very noisy in the bedroom and it was very difficult to sleep properly. The rest of the flat had no A/C unit and it was very hot. Upon arrival I asked for the transfer to the airport and I was quoted $12, when I said it was too much they reduce it to $10, still too much for such location. Also the car given was a small private car. Not to mention the food which was a disaster in terms of quality and pricing. We order toast with cheese and fries, one slice of cheese that was all!!! Cost was ridiculous as they charged around $4 for it!!!

We booked our last night here as a stepping stone to catch our return flight from SL. A huge mistake which we won’t repeat.

The pros: Close to the airport. However, be aware that the hotel will charge you $US12 for airport drop-off, unfair amount for such a short distance.
Air-con & fan worked in room. Good security aspect.

Cons: Everything else:-( Unfriendly, self-important manager. The apartment was drab & depressing, bathroom had no shower cubicle or curtain. Unappealing dinner, overcooked fish etc.

With hindsight, it would've been better if we had travelled directly to the airport from Colombo.

Green view hotel, katunayake is just 10 minutes drive from the colombo international airport. its a pure budget hotel with decent facilities. hotel is located at a calm and quiet village area, but very close to the airport. the best thing i liked is the free wifi internet provided. wifi is not available in one section of the building since its away from the router. but we get good signals in the lawn, where we can sit under cozy umbrella huts. there is a very good swimming pool for people who love to have a dip. food is ok, there is no much choises, but the manager tried to arrange food as per our suggestions with the limited options. rooms are average type with good air conditioning and good toilets. service is prompt and very good. the facilities are good enough for what we pay.

Room Tip: choose rooms closer to reception. it is slightly costlier than other section, but here you will get...

This place was a very pleasant surprise, for the price etc. It was clean, pleasant and conveniently situated at 15 minutes' drive from the airport. The staff is very helpful, and the pool a real bonus. One cannot cook in the apartments, as the kitchens are not kitted out.
